5 out of 5 eggs Solid Gold wonder! 04/13/2016

This review is from: Nexus 6P 64GB Matte Gold LTE Unlocked Smartphone (North America Warranty)

Pros: I've been a Samsung smartphone user since the 1st gen Galaxy, then a Note 2. I love the Nexus, because it offers so much style but backs it up with the super fast Snapdragon and 8 cores of processing power. As others have said, you can't understate the sheer speed of stock Android Marshmellow.

I did experience two issues since I bought this phone 4 weeks ago. One, the bluetooth paired to my 2016 Dodge van would work fine for phone, but the streaming audio was very quiet (extremely low volume) in comparison. Also, the deep sleep and doze modes to save battery wasn't working very often. But, the beauty of a Nexus phone is the regular updates from Google. As of the March and now the April updates, both problems are gone! The phone sips power to the tune of less than 1% per hour! And the music streaming works fine in the new Dodge now over BT! I also pair this phone with my Kia and a remote BT speaker in the house and it all sounds/works great!

Lastly, I love me some G O L D! Not the yellowish gold of the Samsung, but a true light Champagne that just looks awesome! No regrets, and best of all, it keeps me contract free on Sprint!

Cons: If I must find a con, I'm a big guy, so the size of the phone seems great to me, especially for the 5.7" WQHD AMOLED which is perfect to my eyes and watching videos on the go. To some, it may seems a bit large!

Other Thoughts: Highly recommend - especially if you want to avoid contracts, pay a minimal monthly plan, and have the freedom to swap to any carrier at any time in the U.S.

Pros: Works at advertised timings using XMP profiles
Nice vibrant red color and doubles as a finger saw!
Windows 7 benchmark on 2nd-gen Intel i5 went to 7.9!
Ran Windows memcheck with NO issues

Cons: CAS 11 isn't super fast but at is does support 1T and 2T options in the XMP1 and XMP2 profiles

Other Thoughts: Worked right off the bat with an older i5 (2nd generation) build in an ASRock Z68 motherboard. NO issues, system recognized the XMP timings and it has been rock solid since. I will update if anything changes.
